Funko Fusion Teaser Promises Cross-Play With The Umbrella Academy, Jurassic World and More
Funko Pops, the adorable line of vinyl figures and bobbleheads with a cult following, is getting its own video game. 10:10 Games has released a teaser for its upcoming title, Funko Fusion, which is described as an action-adventure multiplayer game, featuring characters from multiple movies and TV series. The brief trailer doesn’t offer much in the way of gameplay and just shows off its cast from NBCUniversal franchises like The Umbrella Academy, Jurassic World, Shaun of the Dead, He-Man, Chucky the Doll, and more. Funko Fusion is slated to arrive in early 2024, on PC and consoles.
10:10 Games marks its first project with Funko Fusion, promising unique personalities and abilities for each character. It would make sense for the game to be fashioned after the Lego series of video games like LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga or LEGO Batman, as the studio was co-founded by Jon Burton – five-time BAFTA award winner and founder of TT Games. For this project, he is joined by a team of experienced veterans, qualified to work on “brick-based games”, according to the press release. Funko Fusion is also expected to include online multiplayer, allowing up to four players to team up and battle enemies, explore scenic environments, and solve elaborate puzzles.
“It’s incredibly exciting to be able to show everyone what the team at 10:10 Games has been up to,” said Arthur Parsons, Chief Design Officer and Co-Founder of 10:10 Games. “Harnessing the incredible properties entrusted to us by our partners at Universal Games and Digital Platforms, bringing them together in a gaming experience that’s incredibly fun, surprising, authentic, and celebrating fandom like never before, all through a Funko lens.” .”
A look at 10:10 Games’ YouTube channel shows a trailer released about nine months ago, proving how long Funko Fusion has been in development and that it’s probably not a half-baked experimental idea.
For now, Funko Fusion only appears to include NBCUniversal properties, but shows potential for expansion to other licenses – likely as DLC add-ons or an entirely separate game, if it proves successful. The short snippets of the trailer suggest co-op could be designed similarly to Lego games, where players could encounter split screens or see the entire screen retract and adjust depending on the amount of play. ‘stock. At one point, we can see Player 1 shooting incoming droids, while Player 2 carries a battery to power an automatic door. One thing is for sure, headshots are going to be super easy.
Funko Fusion is slated for release in 2024 on PC and unspecified consoles.
